Construction of 3D layer-pillared homoligand coordination polymers from a 2D layered precursor.

Herein, we present a new method for preparing homoligand 3D coordination polymers. First, a layered metal-organic framework Zn3(BDC)3(H2O)2 x 4DMF 1 (BDC is terephthalate, DMF is N,N-dimethylformamide) was fabricated from a H2BDC by liquid-liquid diffusion. Second, the layered product, 1, was used as a precursor to solvothermally react with further H2BDC at… (More)
